Big Picture: Individual Protection Against Atomic Attack

DVD Copied by Katie Filbert - Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). "THE BIG PICTURE" presents effective measures against atomic attack -- THE BIG PICTURE presents a documentary film currently in use for training soldiers against possible nuclear warfare. Part of this training is to familiarize soldiers with actual atomic detonations, showing them the damage such weapons can inflict, and teaching them the most effective methods of defense against atomic attack. There is no minimizing the potency of the nuclear weapon. But today's soldier, well informed and well trained in test blasts over the last few years, has a better chance of survival on the nuclear battlefield. As explained by THE BIG PICTURE's host, MSgt. Stuart Queen, many of the methods employed by the Army in the training of its soldiers are equally applicable to the citizens of this nation in the event of atomic attack. Although the battleground of the future may well be a nuclear one and the nuclear weapon is perhaps the greatest challenge to the foot soldier in military history, the United States Army believes it is a challenge that can be met, and that today's soldier has a chance of surviving this new weapon just as the soldier of the past was able to survive the weapons of his day.
